While most dogs might use their mouth to catch balls and stuff thrown in their direction, there’s a dog in Sakura, Chiba, Japan who is so good at catching balls with her paws that she’s gotten a certified Guinness World record for it! Isn’t that amazing?
Makoto Kumagai discovered that his dog Purin loved to catch balls with her paws. So, he trained her to do it by letting her catch balls like a little soccer goalkeeper for around 15 minutes per day. He could have trained her harder but this kind master only wanted her to have fun while training.
He also provided Purin with the best food he could give her plus exercise to strengthen her muscles.
When they finally had a representative from the Guinness Book of World records, she was quite amazed to watch this tiny pooch achieve the feat! Purin has set a new world record for “Most balls caught by a dog with the paws in one minute”; she got fourteen (14) balls!
